The Bromance of Korean TV show 2Days, 1 Night

Like any aging yuppie, I am already past the phase of clubbing and crazy nights out. I noticed that I have become boring, prone to becoming a creature of habit, has started to prefer “staying in” rather than “staying out” and has no ounce of the dreaded FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) virus. While people…

Bad Guys – finally a Korean drama loved by the Hubs

Like fashion, shoes and cosmetics, the love of Korean drama is something that is solely the women and the fashionable gay men’s territory. Korean dramas usually follow a certain formula — just enough of syrupy goodness to make every woman fall in love, a good mix of comedy to lighten the mood and gut-wrenching scenes…

Concert Review: BLUE MOON (CNBlue in Manila 2013)

I was one of the few noonass trapped in a sea of shrieking, screaming, near-epileptic girls during the one-night concert of Korean band, CNBlue last Saturday, June 15 at the Araneta Coliseum. I couldn’t blame them — I almost passed out due to the sheer talent of this band — well, make that good looks,…

Over the wall and over the moon with Rooftop Prince

Rooftop Prince is good!!! Watch it. Watch it. Waaaaaaaaaaaatch it!!! I wish I could summarize Rooftop Prince with just the above statements, and quite honestly, the above will actually suffice. This 2012 drama, starring Mickey Yoochun/Park Yoochun of idol boyband JYJ (formerly TVXQ) and Han Ji-min, plus with awesome support from Lee Min-ho (NOT that…

Full House Take 2: So Campy, It’s Fun

Faced with the prospect of going back to work, I was tinkering with this laptop last night, looking for a new korean drama that I can watch. After all, it’s been a long time following the last K-drama I watched. Let me see: I never got to finish Boys Over Flowers, I also started watching…

The BIG BANG Theory (Thoughts on the Big Bang ALIVE Tour Manila)

If you think that this is about the four adoring dork with their hit TV show, you are clearly lost. I apologize and will not take offense if you’d rather go back. Rather, this post is about five extremely talented, sinfully hot and hella fashion forward guys from South Korea and how one night made…

I like ’em Bad Boys!

I have a confession to make. For sometime now, I have been very unfaithful…. …to Arashi. It all started with ubiquitous pictures in Seoul, the urgent need to find copies of the “Alive” CD which my good friend F asked me to buy for her, along with the constant need to find them on Seoul’s…

The Great Seoul Searching Trip (Days 1 and 2)

Last March, I had the great opportunity of going to Seoul (via Busan) and see the many magnificent things that I used to see on TV only. As mentioned in my earlier post, the trip was a pleasant surprise, I was not expecting to go but ended up going after being awarded a visa by…

My Week in Seoul in Photos (Days 67-71 of Project 365)

You do know that I have lots to tell you about Korea. How it was one of the best places I’ve been to.  Granted, Seoul and Busan are beautiful places with nary any trash in sight (lots of cigarette butts though) and wide roads and amazing sights.  But the best for me is discovering how…

First report from Busan!

Just saying a quick “hi!” from freezing Busan! It’s cold but the place is all good. The people are very kind and always smiling, especially the guy who helped us find our way to Busan station. Will post updates tomorrow when I take the KTX from Busan to Seoul. Until then, keep safe people!
